  Modified files:
    share/man/man9       Makefile critical_enter.9 
  Update this manpage:
  - Remove references to cpu_critical_*() as they no longer exist.
  - Explain that any preemptions that occur during a critical section are
    deferred until the current thread exits the section.
  - Remove a bogus example usage of a critical section.
  - Note that one can interlock critical sections with spin mutexes in
    certain situations.
